+1 for C.

(A) Native Americans viewed the white man with suspicion, for they --> Modifier error

(B) Native Americans were suspicious of the white man, and they --> Modifier error

(C) the white man was viewed with suspicion by Native Americans, who --> Correct, rectifies modifier and pronoun error

(D) the white man was suspicious to Native Americans, and it was --> Pronoun error

(E) the white man was viewed with suspicion by Native Americans, it being --> Pronoun error

Hence, C.

MANHATTAN REVIEW OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



The first thing you have to determine is who or what was unchallenged? The Native Americans or the white man? The white man was unchallenged. Therefore that phrase should go first after the word ‘firearms’. That leaves choices C, D and E. The second thing you have to determine is who or what feared the thunder sticks? The Native Americans. So you need a pronoun which refers correctly to the Native Americans. Choice C is the correct answer.

in (C), how do we know that 'who' refers to the Native Americans and NOT the white man?
